County sanitarian continues variance granting powers
LESLIE KRIEWALDT HERALD ZEITUNG
bring more musicians and dancers in these free concerts sponsored by the city parks and recreation department.
County Sanitarian Bob Stahl still has his authority to grant variances after county commissioners reviewed in Thursday’s workshop why routine variances were happening.
The county private sewage facility order had adopted the state construction guidelines, making all permissive language mandatory. Therefore the county regulations were stricter than the state standards.
On Thursday, state Department of Health official Steve Tencza told commissioners, “You have special problems because of being over the Edwards Aquifer (recharge zone) and because of the varying soil conditions in your county.”
“So making the rules more stringent might be reasonable for our conditions,” said County Judge Fred Clark.
However, Stahl explained that some of the standards might become more strict than is practical if all of the state's guidelines are mandatory.
"For instance, if we strictly enforced our order and if an impervious layer is found within four feet of the bottom of the bed, we should not allow an absorption system to be put in,” Stahl said.
“Given that standard, hardly any absorption systems could be put in Comal County. Only evaporation systems would pass. I give routine variances on that.”
Stahl explained that an installer is told to blast and fracture the rock, after which time an absorption system is put in place.
Commissioner Bill George said commissioners ought to think about not granting that variance because a lot of the systems put in over rock were leaching out.
“It doesn’t matter the size of the lot,” George said. “They (absorption systems over rock) don’t work. We have examples all over the county where these systems are surfacing — systems inspected by your department.”
However, none of the other commissioners remarked on whether they would be willing to back up the sanitarian becoming that strict.
The developers would have to use much larger lot sizes to accommodate an evaporative system. Stahl said.
Other instances in which routine variances are granted include allowing the drain field to be inches closer than the foundation of the house and not requiring the septic tank to be filled with water to test its water tightness.
“In many cases there is no water available to test it.’’ Stahl said. “We inspect the tank visually instead.”
Tencza said he interpreted the county and state rules as giving the county no room to grant variances, quoting a state rule that said no variance can be granted if it lowers
the state’s standards.
However, variances granted in Comal County have never lowered state standards because of the permissive language of the state rules.
The authority to grant variances was spelled out in a county order which was approved by the Texas Department of Water Resources.
Tencza said that there are some areas where the state set mandatory language, such as prohibiting particular kinds of rock from being used in drain fields.
At one point, Clark said he was interested in learning why the state allowed a variance when the county had refused it.
The suggestion in the state guideline is that a drain field and septic tank be no closer than 150 feet to a well. In the county standards. this is mandatory.
Stahl had asked the state to look into the question because the state has the final decision on water s> stems. The district office engineers recommended no variance, but the state already had granted one.
“How come we cannot grant a variance to this. but you can ’ " Clark asked the state official.
Tencza pointed out that the count) could grant variances on the septic system, but the state had the final word on whether the well was potable.
